Voces Sacrae is one of the most exciting and versatile professional chamber choirs in Britain today, having already established an excellent reputation and receiving superb reviews for every performance . The ensemble has been working in the fields of both contemporary (mainly a cappella) and Renaissance choral music and, from the mid-1990s, has been performing and recording in association with Oxford University Press, promoting their new choral repertoire. The choir is very keen to bring the work of new composers to the public's attention. Voces Sacrae has recorded a disc of choral works by Edmund Rubbra including several previously unrecorded items as well as its CDs for Metier.

The choir has broadcast on BBC radios 2, 3 and 4 and has given highly acclaimed concerts in venues throughout the UK. In 1998 it traveled to south-eastern Australia in association with OUP to give concerts and workshops, and performed on ABC's "The Music Show" following which several concerts were recorded for radio and TV. Voces Sacrae also gave the world premiere of Finnissy's Seven Sacred Motets in a packed St. James Hall, Sydney.
